Damage Done

Patrick Altman, Thomas Barrow, Max Dean, Robert Frank, Jennifer Givogue, Fiona McLaughlin, Brett Weston


Damage Done explores the many ways that artists engage with the fragility and vulnerability of photographic materials, from facilitating the breakdown of photographic emulsion for creative expression to deliberately damaging original negatives to assert authorship and control. The exhibition includes the work of contemporary practitioners, both emerging and established, along with photographers from the historical canon and assorted archival materials. Presented in conjunction with the release party for issue 11 of Prefix Photo magazine, the exhibition is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Toronto Arts Council.
